I am just having such a blast with the new Tiddly Inks steampunk images! I had to create another card today. For this card I decided to use Priscilla, a frame from the Steampunk Papers - Extra Goodies set and a sentiment from the Steampunk Sentiments Mega Pack. (These packs are so amazing...you get a huge amount of images or sentiments for a low price. It's awesome! You can check out the whole Steampunk line right here.)
The sentiment, which I printed really tiny, says "One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary [wo]men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary [wo]man." It is attributed to Elbert Hubbard, a writer from the late 1800's. The merged images I colored with Copics. The dp with the writing and butterfly is actually a stamp from Hero Arts. I decided to use it because of the butterflies in the image's frame. After stamping onto grey paper I edged it using Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I decided it was a little too bland, so colored the butterfly with Copics. The butterfly on the top left is a Shapeability by Spellbinders. It's actually two butterflies. I cut the dies, adhered one to the card, edged the top one, drew lines on the wings with a Spica marker, curved the wings and attached just the middle to the bottom butterfly. The flowers on the bottom right are not actual flowers. They are rub-ons, and I added pearls to the centers.
Of course I am entering this into the Tiddly Inks Samples Show Off. You really should check it out...it's a fabulous way to possibly win some awesome images. It's a lot of fun, and since there are no set styles, colors or rules, it's a great way to just let your creativity fly!
Thanks so much for stopping by. We'll be seeing you!
